British Pigs: Best in the World?

After buying his own pig he refers to as "the Empress", Guardian writer Alex James declares British pork the best in the world.

And pork pies and sausage rolls are clearly superior to air-dried hams and salamis - they're just a phase. Good British bacon is better than almost anything else. It is better than German cars."
